American Idol Results: James Durbin Voted Off?
It is hard to select actual losers from this week on American Idol. All four were pretty good, but this is what it is down to. Now people have to choose between good (James Durbin) and great. This week I only have one loser.
My only choice for this week’s loser is James Durbin. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t like it was terrible; he just wasn’t up to his normal high level. For starters he seemed a little uptight with Lady Gaga. I understand he is married and he has mild Asperger’s which can cause some social issues, so he might not have been comfortable with Gaga grabbing his hips, but it is hard to buy a rock star who is uptight. Aside from that (and that was only a very minor thing that I am likely over-reading) his performances were just a little off. James’s version of “Don’t Stop Believing” was a little off key and to me it felt kind of a like a karaoke version of it. Maybe it is because it is such a well-known song, but it seemed a little cheesy and not in a good way. His second song “Love Potion no.9” was just wrong for him. Gaga should have held him down and not let him do that song or at least help him make it something cool. It just came off as odd and it was proof that maybe you can’t make any song into a rock song.
I have said before and still believe that James Durbin will win American idol and because of that I think he will be safe this week, but I just feel when you compare him to the other three this week he comes in fourth place. I will be very shocked if he is voted out tonight, but you never know what could happen now that we are down to just four on American Idol. Tune in tonight at 8PM on Fox to see it all unfold.
UPDATE: James Durbin has been voted off!!!!!
